We stumbled across this restaurant on a midweek night so it was relatively quiet. The service was excellent as was the food. The staff could not do enough for us. Best restaurant we ate in during our week long stay.

Visited for the first time and had such a great time. Customer service was excellent with full explanation of the specials and visuals of the fish of the day. The recommended wine was excellent and honest, had such a wonderful meal. Certainly would return again 👍

One of our top two restaurants during our week-long stay in St. Julian's. The setting is perfect, food and wine excellent and reasonably priced compared to other alternatives. Service was also top-notch.

Peperoncino is a nice local restaurant, suitable especially for a nice, relatively fancy dinner. The service is very friendly and helpful, they explain the dishes etc. BTW, as a vegetarian not eating seafood, you can expect two to three main dishes.

We love every single thing about this restaurant! Food is divine, the atmosphere of the place is very cozy, the old walls and ceiling feels like home. We love to dinner at the small second floor place. Only occupies 2 tables so it feels like you have your own privacy, having the view of the rest of the restaurant. The... More

This is a gem of a place. Very slightly off the main drag but if you find the City of London pub just look around and you will spot it from that. The menu outside tells you what is available before you even go in. The atmosphere is wonderful. Suitable for solo diners, couples and families. The waiting staff are... More
